    STUART A. SIMKE has over 40 years of experience preparing and trying complex business and other civil litigation cases representing both plaintiffs and defendants in the state and federal courts and before various arbitration tribunals at the trial and appellate level. In addition, he was for most of those years the managing partner of the highly regarded firms of Irmas, Simke, Rutter & Hecht; Simke, Chodos, Silberfeld & Anteau; and Simke, Chodos & Sasaki.

    Through his diverse caseload, Mr. Simke has developed special expertise in commercial and real property litigation, partnership and corporate disputes, legal and accounting malpractice, unfair competition and other business torts, administrative and licensing disputes, and disputes concerning land owned by American Indians. Mr. Simke has served successfully as a mediator, including resolving disputes between law and accounting partners.

    Mr. Simke is highly regarded within the legal profession as having special expertise as a legal tactician, expert in diagnosing solutions to highly complex legal and factual matters and then structuring those cases so as to maximize his clients’ chances of obtaining, where possible, favorable settlements, or, if not, prevailing at trial. Mr. Simke is regarded as a superior negotiator and, realizing that the high costs associated with litigation means that many matters are best resolved as early as possible, developed a highly successful strategy to cause those matters to proceed to, and be resolved by, mediation thereby saving his clients significant sums in litigation fees and costs.

    Mr. Simke graduated with honors from UCLA in 1957, including admission to the Phi Beta Kappa Society, and received his Juris Doctor degree from UCLA in 1960. While at UCLA, he was awarded the Order of the Coif and became a member and later an editor of the UCLA Law Review.
